Join us for a one-night, free workshop led by teaching-writer Elisabeth McKetta!

It’s dirty work, but every writer seeking a wide audience has to do it. Sending work to publishers, editors, literary magazines, and agents is the third step of a writing process (first is coming up with the idea, second is writing and revising it). WORD Workshop: Submitting for Publication will teach you how to prepare a manuscript, how to write a cover letter or query, how to organize your venues and responses, and how to keep writing regardless of the result.


This workshop is free to patrons and coincides with the deadline to submit to The Cabin’s Writers in the Attic writing competition.

The Cabin is now accepting submissions for the fifth annual Writers in the Attic writing competition. Idaho poets, fiction and non-fiction story writers are encouraged to send their work on the theme “water.” Entries will be accepted through 5 pm, Friday, February 26th, 2016. Work will be blind judged by a local literary notable and the selected works will be published as part of the Writers in the Attic 2016 anthology.
